History and profile
Founded in 1981 in Fresno, California, Pollstar essentially purloined the format pioneered by Performance Magazine, founded a decade earlier in Ft. Worth, Texas. Pollstar won a war of attrition with Performance, which abruptly ceased publication in 1999.
Today, Pollstar has an office in London and correspondents in six countries. The magazine is a member of the Associated Press (AP). Its subscribers receive the weekly magazine and access to its online databases.
